ABC Gives An Update On John Ridley's Mysterious Marvel TV Project

Rumors have circulated for quite some time regarding just what exactly John Ridley is working on for Marvel and ABC - Ms. Marvel, Blade, Inhumans and more have all been rumored at one point or another.

Just what is John Ridley (best known for the screenplay for 12 Years A Slave) developing for ABC? No one seems to know as rumors have swirled for quite some time, attaching him to everything from a series based on Blade's daughter to a show centered around the new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan.  Whatever the show is, it's stil lin development at ABC but it sounds as if it's still a long ways off based on comments from ABC President Channing Dungey.

When EW asked Channing to update the project's status, Dungey commented, "Yeah, so John is working on a rewrite of that script for Marvel at the moment. We have not seen a new version of it. He’s been on production of his show, over in London, and on season 3 of American Crime, so those are the things that have been top of mind for him of late. But I have heard from Marvel that he is working on a revision to that script."

With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. strongly being considered for another season and recent advancements on Cloak and Dagger, The Runaways and Marvel's crop of Netflix dramas, it's certainly understandable that there's no rush on Ridley to turn in something that's not ready.
